Ideological limitations of Eminescu’s journalistic work reception
Insufficiently known by the public and only partially studied by the exegesis, the journalistic work fulfils the universe of Eminescu’s creation into a unitary image. Without the intention of heightening the value of Eminescu’s journalistic work, we consider that the analysis of the role played by Eminescu in the process of creating an autonomous Romanian journalistic language during the second half of the 19th century and of his contribution to enriching the expression means of the literary language would mark an important step in building a clear perception upon Eminescu’s genius. The identification and the analysis of some labels attached to the publicist Eminescu, labels which have evolved into masks that debase the publicist’s image, by blocking the access to the real essence of Eminescu’s journalistic work, represent the Ariadne’s clew in our text. The „retrograde”, „nationalist”, „xenophobe” and „anti-Semite” masks are argued and taken down by referring to the poet’s manuscripts and to the treatises. We consider that a critical reading of the „masks”, which had been ascribed to the journalist Eminescu, underlines the dangers that could be generated by an interpretation grille, which eludes the socio-historical horizon of the texts.
